I almost got a twofer when the spring tour ended in 1990, but the guys shook it off and headed home. I know the double encore rarely happened in the later years, but does any one know where I can get that information? How many times did a double or triple encore occur? Anyone here witness a double encore? The Cap Centre Ripple is one that comes to mine.
Peace

Yup. Including once on my birthday! (Thanks, guys.) Got double encores on 12/5/79, 8/8/82, 8/10/82, 6/18/83, 7/1/85

Btw 8/8 and 8/10/82 were back to back shows. So, double double encore.

edit: Well, that was interesting. Just checked the setlists, and it turned out to be 2 JBGs, 2 Baby Blues, 2 Satisfactions, and 2 Don’t Ease Me Ins.

12/5/79 (Uptown): Johnny B Goode, Don’t Ease Me In
8/8/82 (Alpine Valley) Satisfaction, Brokedown and 8/10/82 (Iowa) Baby Blue, Johnny B Goode
6/18/83 (SPAC): Don’t Ease Me In, OMSN
7/1/85 (Merriweather Post): Satisfaction, Baby Blue

Final day of Greeks in 1984 was a double encore. Brokedown Palace/Johny B Goode.

In fact, that 3 day run was pretty fair for encores...

I was a the GREEK Theater show, but the show is a disdtant memory, except that the late Norton Buffalo opened and then Bonnie Raitt came on w/ snortin Norton playing on Runaway. Are these the same shows you guys are talking about?

Only double I saw was 7/9/95 - Black Muddy, Box of Rain

Others from the 90s off the top of my head

7/14/90 - Last Time, AWBYGN

9/26/91 - Brokedown, AWBYGN

11/3/91 - B. Graham memorial ended with Forever Young, Touch

EDIT: Come to think of it, there are also all those instances of Baba O'Riley> Tomorrow Never Knows - 7/1/92 comes to mind.

I saw 3 in summer '85.

6/27/85 Saratoga.....JBG > Baby Blue

7/1/85 Merriweather... Satisfation > Baby blue

7/2/85 Pittsburgh.... Revolution > Brokedown

I think I may have seen one or two others but would have to do some research to confirm. The above only stand out in my memory because it was 3 within a week. Not something that happened often, I would think.

MSG 3-10-81, Satisfaction into Brokedown. Great show, one of my faves from MSG, one of the best venues to see the Dead!
